Knowledge Note

Islands in the Eastern Caribbean are highly vulnerable to natural disasters and climate related hazards. Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) enabled the World Bank, in partnership with other development organizations, to establish a comprehensive program targeting disaster risk management (DRM) and resilience in the region. These islands have since taken major steps to enhance their capacity to mitigate the effects of natural disaster and climate risk.
